20130323_095302.jpgI have no advice whatever! but do offer my observations on the joy of cycling over the years.
Rode a Schwinn StingRay, in green, fat tire, when about 12, then was part of the early trend in 10 speeds when I was 14...had an Atala full campy bike.
Then mountain bikes, GT LTS 2.
Then my current mount....
A KONA UTE.
It is a weird bicycle, but I like that its long wheelbase makes it a smooth ride but has no suspension units, which are very hard to keep running like new after 3 years, the forks do not slide like new, and the rear units are time consuming to rebuild.
None of those problems with the UTE.
I don't wear a helmet ever, but ride about 7 miles per hour on bike trails. I look at rivers, sometime walk for fun.
I probably get more enjoyment than ever from the UTE, and like the new SERVICE bicycle category.
I ride pretty much year round, stopped only by deep snow.
Bike trails only, no roads.
